Gauthier Valérie


In addition to poetry and art, Valerie Gauthier has a strong interest in sports, having placed fourth in the 1983 NIAI tennis championship and won a gold medal in the 2004 Master 2 category of the French Ski Open. Her belief in the power of athletic competition to foster team building, cooperation, and mutual respect is reflected in her enthusiastic support of the HEC MBAT.


This annual event held on the HEC campus brings together over 1,800 MBA participants from the leading European business schools to compete in a variety of sporting events over three days. The MBAT offers a unique opportunity to establish business relationships with future clients and partners, as the opportunities for networking and inter-cultural exchanges are outstanding. Representing more than 70 nationalities, MBAT participants encounter exciting challenges that allow them to demonstrate and further develop their spirit of teamwork and fair play. The tournament is a key event in the MBA calendar, and all participants are expected to take an active part in it.
